Glamor and community mingled on February 28, 2014, as the Northwest Chamber of Commerce celebrated its 23rd annual Casino Night fundraising event and canned food drive at the St. Ann Community Center. With Mardi Gras in the air, the colorful crowd was dressed to the nines to enjoy the event that showcased fabulous food-fare from local restaurants, live entertainment and casino-style gaming. The open bar provided an added layer of joie de vivre to the evening. Guests climbed into photo booths to commemorate the elation of ‘doubling down’ or putting it on all black. See below for a few of our swanky contributions to the photo booth memories. The event, incorporating all the excitement of a Vegas casino floor, beautifully blended celebration and charity.
The evening reached a crescendo with the raffling of a virtual jackpot of prizes. Assorted baskets of goods lured attendees to try their luck in yet another game of chance. All raffle items, along with the food and drink, were generously donated by local chamber members. Ferguson Roofing was among the raffle donors and participants, contributing to the stellar event that celebrated the many assets of the Northwest St. Louis region.
Ferguson has been a member of the Chamber for eight years and we proudly participate in the many events they host. Our company, established in 1939, has stayed true to one of the ideals on which it was founded: Take care of the community that takes care of you! We value organizations such as the Northwest Chamber of Commerce for their contribution to the betterment of the region. This event, which benefited Chamber’s Scholarship Fund, is a fantastic example of how civic involvement can be an investment in the future of our community.
